With the Pipefy Importer App, you can import information from an Excel file (XLSX) to pipes and databases with greater agility. Therefore, it is necessary to perform some previous configurations to ensure that all records will be imported correctly.

There are specific types of cells in XLSX documents that can be transformed into new cards or database records, as you prefer.

🔔 Attention: Your document must not contain merged cells or columns, nor filters applied in cells or columns to work correctly.

Check which information formats are necessary for each type of field:


Text with the user's username, email (lower case only), or ID.

If you'd like to add multiple values to a field, use a comma to separate them.

For example: John Doe, mary-pipefy, 127765, [email protected].
